Exploring Ecosystems

Exploring Ecosystems is a new program focusing on the incredible habitats found in our own backyards

The goal of this program is to build awareness and understanding of the local environment so that students become conservationists!

 

Each unit focuses on a different habitat type found in the areas.  Take a look and learn about the amazing biodiversity that you can find right here in Fairfield County.
